There are lots of things our kids do that make us proud as parents. While it is great to hear your kids recite their ABC, write their names, say all the presidents, or know their colors, there is something else that tops all of that!
To me teaching my children about God is more important. John and I are in agreement that giving our children a good Christian education comes first. To accomplish this, we have worship with them each night.
To me this takes on a new meaning. Daily I claim the promise made in Proverbs 22:6. This says: “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” I know that I have to teach my kids now while I am alive because I want them to live good Christian lives.
So by now you are asking “Why are you one proud mama?”
This year Abby is old enough to attend AWANA. Each week she has to learn a text which she then recites to the leaders. She loves it! We have been doing this now for 7 weeks. Here is why I am sooooo proud.
Also I think it is so important to teach my children how to pray. One of the first things I teach about prayer is that we need to thank God for our food. Once again I am such a proud mama because Kaylee already knows she has to pray before we eat.
And lastly here is my son saying his memory verse for AWANA. He is learning his old and new testament but only knows the first half of each. He wanted to say this.
